Throughout the exhibition, references will be made to various scholarly works and terms will be used that one may not be immediately familiar with. In an attempt to make this exhibition truly accessible to the public, especially individuals with no prior knowledge of the subject area, definitions have been made available for certain terms in the first section of this page labelled "Part One". The exhibition is designed to highlight the experiences of Afro-Latinx women from their own personal accounts while supplying auxiliary historiographical information to contextualize their accounts and relate them to those of the women who pioneered the Black Feminist Movement. There is, however, no recommended order by which you should adhere when visiting the exhibition, so feel free to explore this page and this topic in whatever order you see fit.

A Place For Themselves: A Material and Print Culture Analysis of Radical Anthologies by Women of Color
The radical movements of the 1960's through the 1980's were a time of great passion, activist zeal, and political mobilization. However, within movements like the Black Liberation movement and the mainstream women's movement, many Black women and other women of color did not find a place for themselves within these frameworks that adequately addressed their race, gender, and class oppression. Out of these movements came black feminist thought, which states that black women cannot separate race, gender, and class oppression because they all are experienced at the same time (Combahee River Collective 234). Building off of black feminist thought, two foundational anthologies The Black Woman: An Anthology (1970), edited by Toni Cade Bambara, and This Bridge Called My Back: Radical Writings by Women of Color (1981), edited by Cherríe Moraga and Gloria Anzaldúa, created their own spaces to reflect on the experiences of their intersecting identities. In a material and print culture analysis of The Black Woman and This Bridge, this critical essay will argue these works fought to build community, self-determination, and political power for women of color through their content, creation, presentation, and reception.
